Description


In the late nineteenth century, the Mulliner Box & Planing Company of Quincy, Illinois, provided its customers with an abundantly illustrated catalog displaying an immense and varied supply of interior and exterior millwork elements. This unabridged republication of that now-rare document offers unparalleled insight into the style and appearance of an extensive variety of decorative woodwork items that provided finishing touches to houses, cottages, churches, and offices in days gone by.
Included is an enormous array of material -- from window frames and sashes to church pulpits and pew ends. Nearly 300 finely detailed illustrations are accompanied by captions that provide descriptions, dimensions, and prices for such diverse items as doors, blinds, moldings, stair work, mantels, embossed and cut glass, brackets, scrollwork, wood drapery, balustrades, and much more.
Home restorers, preservationists, antiquarians, architectural historians, nostalgia buffs, and anyone interested in the buildings and building styles of a century ago will welcome this volume for its factual precision and the delightful opportunity it offers for browsing.
